The mission of the Great Plains Theatre Conference is to recognize the work of renowned American playwrights while fostering the work of new and emerging ones.

The creative goals of the Conference are threefold:

• Nurture new playwrights, giving them an opportunity to have their work performed; and to study with, and receive thoughtful feedback from experienced theater professionals.

• Be a place where emerging and more accomplished playwrights can workshop their new work and receive attention from national theater professionals.

• Be a catalyst for vibrant new work to be launched into the national theater scene.
